2021: James Suckling: 93/100 "Warm and rooty with full wild blackberry fruit and a hint of rye bread crust, this bold pinot noir is the opposite of the thin, pale and sour wine much of the world still expects from this grape in Germany. Full, fleshy palate with healthy underlining tannins and lively acidity. Long finish with plenty of energy and freshness."

2018: Gourmetwelten "Lagen-Cup 2020": 93,5/100 | Ronn Wiegand: 4+/5 "An extremely good Pinot Noir; excellent value. The Herzog Pinot Noir is a wonderful single vineyard bottling. It is full bodied and fairly intense, with fine character (rose petal, plum, cherry, clove, black tea), light oakiness, good balance, and a firm, long finish. Warrants further aging. Aged in French oak barrels."
